    Absolutely worth the time and money

    I needed the shortest path to pivot from a research position in physics to a career in data science.  I considered grad school, but I have a family, and I need to be there for my kids during their developmental years.  NYC Data Science Academy offered an effective restructuring of skills over the course of three months.  Not only did I learn skills in data sctructures, statistics, coding, and machine learning, but I also learned skills necessary in the job-hunting process.  The support tha...

    NYCDSA Experience


    Enrolling in the NYCDSA is easily one of the best decisions I have made, not only in my professional career but also in my life.  Being of a statistics background, I knew that programming knowledge was critical when trying to utilize math to solve real-world problems. During my undergraduate years, virtually everything I did mathematically was done by hand. This was a massive constraint because although one may be capable of solving a problem correctly by hand, it is difficult to tru...

    Excellent experience! Highly recommend!

    I did some research on data science online (Course report and switchup) before I made a decision.  I chose NYCDSA because they covered both Python and R, their instructors are knowledgeable and professional, and comprehensive curriculum. Especially I have to use both R and Python in my work, so I think knowing both languages will open more opportunities when looking for a job.

    NYC Data Science Academy did a great job of helping me acquire the necessary skills in Data Science befo...

    Amazing experience

    I graduated at the end of March(Cohort 16).
    Before having the bootcamp, I have no coding or computer science related background. I thought I would fail and not able to get into the industry.
    However, after I took the bootcamp, I learned a lot of coding and Data Science related skills, and this academy has changed my life.
    While I was in the Bootcamp, I made a lot of friends and everyone including staff are so kind.
    After graduating from the program, NYCDSA still provide...

    After spending 9 years in business sales, I wanted to go back to my technical roots and started looking into data science bootcamps that could help me make a career transition. I looked into all the major schools within the data science bootcamps and finally decided to join the NYC Data Science academy thanks to the reviews as well as the comprehensive curriculum.

    “12-Week Immersive Data Science Bootcamp”

    I joined NYC Data Science Bootcamp earlier in the year 2019 after careful comparison with other Bootcamps, they appeared to have alot more to offer, and having completed the training now, I have no regrets. Excellent curriculum, knowledgeable instructors and helpful job assistance structure.

    12 Week Full Time Bootcamp

    This bootcamp has comprehensive materials and structures its bootcamp with a 3 hour lecture each morning followed by a 1-2 hour afternoon lab/mini lecture. The pace is extremely fast (We only spent a few hours going over Logistic Regression) and I recommend all students to put in as much work as possible outside of school to maxmize the value of the bootcamp. NYC DSA has a solid environment for learning but MOST of the learning comes from the student putting in effort. It is extremely easy...

    12-Week Immersive Data Science Bootcamp

    NYCDSA was referred to me by professionals in the industry. I chose the remote bootcamp and learned a vast amount of topics including SQL, R, Python, and Hadoop & Spark. During my studies, I published 4 blog posts of project work ranging from a visual analysis of the American Music Awards to predicting housing prices. I had an assigned TA who I met with weekly to discuss my courses and homework, which was very helpful. Interview prep was als...

    An Incredibly Rewarding Experience

    After working as a computer engineer for 11 years, I decided to pursue a career change in to data science. I looked at a number of different programs available across the country, and I ended up deciding to go with the NYC Data Science 12 week intensive program. One of the largest advantages that program had over others is that they teach both Python and R. I think that both languages have their place in data science, but the biggest benefit from learning both is that the core elements of ...

    Great experience, highly recommend

    I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry, and was looking for a career change before coming to NYCDSA. A friend of mine who had finished the bootcamp and got his Data Scientist job shortly after introduced me to the bootcamp.

    The program was quite intense and comprehensive. The course materials are well prepared and presented. As someone who didn't have much prior coding experience, I was able to absorbing pretty much everything without any problem. Out of the bootcamp, I felt very co...
